True Beautiful You

Posted on

While I was doing random reading on net lately (yah I do random reading on net as well), I came across a much read blog about ‘being feminine’. It talked about how to be feminine. The writer of the blog suggested that to be feminine a woman should wear dresses, skirts, have long lustrous hair, should paint their nails, wear heels, talk softly, apply makeup and more of such blah-blah. I decided to put a pin on that thought while I stepped out to spend my Sunday with my girlfriends.

While I was enjoying with my friends, one of my girlfriend said, “What’s it about you? Guys can’t seem to stop noticing you?” I followed her vision and ended up looking into a cute face openly checking me out. I did mention he was cute right, so I had to check him out as well.

But what really got my attention was my friend’s statement ‘What’s it about you?’ and I decided to study my friends. Both my friends were dressed as per the ideal ‘Feminine Look’. Dresses, heels, makeup, heavy hanging perfume and perfectly set hair. They looked perfect examples of how a feminine female should look like. Compared to them, I looked dressed down in my denim, t-shirt (Ironically I had bought that t-shirt from guy’s section as I could not find a marvel comic hero t-shirt in girl’s section), sneaker, hair tied up in a bun and sans makeup. Yet I was getting more looks than they were.

How? Why?

And then it dawned on me that being feminine is not about the clothes you wear. It’s not about how you style your hair or how much make up you wear. Being feminine is about how you feel inside your skin. You can wear denims and sneakers and you can still be more of a woman than girls in flowing dresses with high heels. Because being a feminine is about being happy being a female. Speak your mind and being nice to people.

I am happy and proud of myself. When I walk, I walk with my chin up and a smile on my lips. I love myself, however I might be. I am just as comfortable in dresses as I am in denims.

More than how to be feminine, one should focus on why one should be feminine. Many girls think this is the easy way to catch a guy’s attention. Well, which guy would get attracted to you if you are too bothered about your hair, make-up, and dresses showing not showing too much? This just shows how unnatural and artificial you are and just how uncomfortable you are being you. Compared to my friends, I was more comfortable in what I wore, which made it easy for me to carry myself well and have a good time. I was laughing and enjoying myself while my friends were busying fussing over themselves. It’s no wonder guys didn’t notice them.

So my advice to all the lovelies out there is ‘You can’t be feminine or a lady if you can’t be yourself.’ Nothing is more attractive than confidence, be it in a guy or girl. Be happy with who you are and learn to except and enjoy yourself. If you are comfortable in your skin than you are more feminine and attractive than any woman in dresses and makeup.

I have been away from by blog for so long, I feel rather guilty. Since I would rather not make promises, all I can say however is that I would try my level best to be more frequent in my posts.

While I was away, I had been doing a lot of homework on self. Sometimes we get so busy with what we are doing, we tend to neglect or ignore what needs the most attention ‘Self’. And by the time we realise, it’s either that we are already a mess, or are in the process of making a mess.

I too realised the flaw after I had made a complete mess of myself. However, thankfully, a very good and close friend of mine, decided to help me out with all this by being my life couch and showing me light, where I thought none existed earlier.

I can’t say that I am completely out of the wreck; however, now I can proudly say that I am happy to be me. I enjoy my own company and I love to bring smiles on all the faces.

I would be sharing a lot of my own personal experience via my blog, in a hope that it might be able to help someone, or save a soul that needs saving. And I would love to hear your views and comments on what you feel.

Till I pen down more, Stay Happy and Keep Creating.

Love to all.

Office Fashion Malfunction??!!??

Posted on

The luxury that we females enjoy, compared to men, is the wide variety in options in wardrobe. Yet, we end up being so wrong on so many occasions.

The most misused item of female clothing, as per me, would be skirts. Although the most amazing piece of clothing, it’s also the most abused. We don’t really tend to think of the fact that skirts not just have to be of your liking, but they also need to hold the practicality of the place being worn at.

And the perfect places to see these malfunctions are in office. So I came across two females, while walking up to fetch a coffee and both were wearing skirts, which as per me were oh so wrong. While one wore a canvas khaki casual skirt on nice satin formal shirt, other wore a short hemline tulip skirt with sequenced work.

While waiting for my coffee to brew up, I just wondered to myself that if the khaki skirt girl exchanged her skirt with the tulip skirt one, she would look perfect for a party. And if the tulip skirt girl wore the khaki skirt, she would still be so wrong.

End conclusion of this coffee pondering?? That some women need help when getting dressed for office, or maybe they can just buy pencil skirts, they are perfect for office and do wonders to your figure.

 Oh and my office definately needs a better coffee machine.

Oh that whiff

I have a deep undying love for perfumes. I not just love to buy them, but I also love it when someone crosses me and is wearing a lovely perfume.

So the other day, I was wearing my favorite perfume Eternity to office. As usual it catches a lot of attention and appreciations from people around. One of my fellow female colleague is in the ‘make over’ mood these days and is goes around asking a lot of questions about clothes, diets, shoes etc. after smelling the perfume on me, she decided to buy one for herself too.

Today when I wore eternity, as a coincidence, she ended up wearing the same perfume. However, it did not smell nice on her. It gave out a very pungent spicy smell which I do not like in my perfumes. Boggled by the difference in smells of the same perfume, she asked why it does not smell the same. I had to tell her that perfumes change smell based on a person’s personal smell or oils.

The mistake that she made is very common when it comes to people buying perfumes. They smell the perfume on the smell cards, and do not try it on their skin and therefore buy it based on the smell they get. Most even buy smell simply because it’s popular.

Perfumes are costly affairs, therefore, my advice to everyone would be, try the smell on your skin and don’t get influenced on how it smells on someone else.

Where have all the Gentlemen Gone?

Posted on

The way I think in the current world, and the way people behave in the 21st century, it gives me the feeling that maybe I am born in an incorrect era. I still look for gentlemen in men and ladies in females. And each time I go looking, I end up feeling all disappointed.

Simple manners that our parents had taught us so painstakingly seem to have warned off our backs. We are more of barbaric bunch of socialized humans than gentlemen wrongly called beasts.

Today was just another day when I was reminded of how wrong I am when I expect men to show a little decency towards women. It is kind of irritating when you open the door of you office to walk in and a guy walks out from the other end and does not even say thank you. Makes you feel stupid, like you were standing there to open the gates for him.

Makes me question, where have all the gentlemen gone?
